Where's my cape?

This working full-time and then rushing home to be a decent parent sucks! Don't get me wrong, I have a great job, one that I love, but it is a VERY busy job and being a mama is a VERY busy job! I don't know how to do it all and not feel guilty about something slipping between the cracks.

I have yet to put together Grace & Jake's baby books and they are 3years old!! WTF! And I haven't even started on Caroline's either! There truly is just not enough time in the day.

How do y'all out there get it all done?? My house is constantly a mess. There is always laundry to do and don't even get me started on cooking meals! I am running out of ideas of what to feed them (refer to my last
post). And lately it has been easier to buy new clothes vs. washing the dirty ones! I can't believe I just admitted that!

So, Superwoman I am not and it is no wonder the cape is nowhere to be found!

Popcorn and Chocolate Chip Cookies....

Well I definitely won't be winning any 'mother of the year' awards with this one!!

Late yesterday around 4pm, Grace & I went to Target and of course the minute she knew we were going there, she immediately started asking for popcorn! So, as soon as we got in the store, we bee-lined it to the popcorn. She & I noshed on it while we shopped :)

Miraculously, we did not finish it all so I brought the remainder home for Jake. By this time it is now just about dinner time and throwing all sense of responsible parenting out the window, gave Jakey the rest to eat. By now, Jake & Grace have decided they want to play outside and of course are not hungry for a real dinner. So the next example of fine parenting I display is by giving them each a chocolate chip cookie for dessert ;) The only one in the house that got a decent meal was Caroline and that's only because she is too young for popcorn!

Honestly I don't normally feed my children this way, I typically cook every night of the week and last night I was tired and couldn't think of making another meal.

Let's just hope they remember this as one of those 'fun' times when Mama didn't make us eat the good stuff!

Not one of my finer parenting moments ;)

A BIG Shout Out!!

Yeah!! My blog design is done and I love it!

The Cutest Blog on the Block designed the whole thing and in a matter of days. And let me tell you, I have as much creativity as a gnat, so they really earned their money with me ;)

Now if only I knew what the hell to write about! ;)

In My Life...

I love my husband more.

In My Life, The Beatles

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I can still recall
Some are dead and some are living
In My Life, I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one that compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In My Life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In My Life I love you more
In My Life I love you more
